Gruenberg Oven reports steady growth in 2017

2017 was a strong year for Gruenberg Oven, a division of TPS, in the pharmaceutical, medical, and lab animal science industries. Gruenberg has seen a steady increase in sales to the pharmaceutical industry of pharmaceutical sterilizers and granulation dryers used for drug manufacturing. Gruenberg’s stainless steel, continuous weld design is ideal for the pharmaceutical industry as it mitigates cross contaminants to the products being sterilized. Another strong area of product sales were the Cleanroom systems used for sterilization of medical devices by the laboratory and medical industries.

The Gruenberg SteriDry™ dry heat sterilizer series has seen year over year growth in the lab animal science industry as it provides a greener, more cost-effective solution than the traditional steam autoclaves used in years past for sterilization of animal cages. The SteriDry saves on utilities by requiring no water, saves on floor space with a minimal footprint, and offers ease of installation with a modular design. 2018 is expected to see continued growth for the SteriDry, as the demand for eco-friendly, space-saving equipment continues to rise.

“Gruenberg has seen steady growth throughout 2017. The experienced engineering team develops customized solutions for the most stringent specifications. These design capabilities play a key role in our success in the pharmaceutical and medical industries. Another area of growth is Gruenberg’s dry heat sterilizer technology used in the lab animal sciences industry. This is a technology we expect to see continue to gain market share in the years to come,” said Dave Strand, president & CEO of Thermal Product Solutions.

Gruenberg, a division of Thermal Product Solutions, LLC, is recognized as a leader in the design and manufacture of a comprehensive line of standard and custom industrial batch and conveyor ovens that accommodate temperatures up to 1,200° F.
